Comprising only tubing and flat discs in powder-coated steel, RIG is a family of furniture objects that are not designed for any specific seating situation but possess a strong sculptural character. The pieces are finished with a sand-textured matt coating normally used for large building façades – this serves to smooth out the transitions between components, unifying the object.
The result of Skogstad’s experiments with 3D-printed metal and desire to explore the versatility of a simple graphic form, PLACE is a series of trays intended to store and display stationery and other small objects.
